Blytrnvilh (Art.) Cturter K«w» - Mondiy, June 18, m- Pat S«ven Something new has been added o the activities this season at he Triangle Boating Club at Caruthersville. It is sailboating ' Rev: Ronald the Hayti Climate Coo Air Conditioning Firms By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - Weather is giving the air conditioning industry more concern than President Johnson's plea for restraint in spending by consumers and in plant expansion by business. On the plus side, cooling experts are basing big hopes just now on medicare, the education explosion and the complicated technical fields fascinating the ration's industries. "A temporary curtailment in spending should not substantially affect the air conditioning snd refrigeration industry's prospects over the next five years," says William H. Roberts, president of the York Division of Borg-Warner. "The main reason is air conditioning now is considered a necessity rather than a luxury." "It's not that we question the president's persuasive powers," A. J. Hackl, president of Worthington Air Conditioning Co., ex- plains. "We agree spending cutbacks will be made in certain areas as a result of his request. But air conditioning no longer can be considered a nonessential item, either for businessmen or homeowners." But weather is another thing. And a late cool spring has cut the sale of room coolers whie otiier consumer durable goods were booming. Sudden arrival of hot weather in some parts of the nation belatedly has sent sales up smartly. Borg-Warner says its May sales were the highest for any month in its history. But the industry is looking beyond the window cooler to the central air conditioner for homes and the use in hospitals, schools, office buildings and factories. Sales of centra] units for homes were around 600,000 in 1965, but Trane Co. predicts 1970 will see 1 million units also notes 75 per cent of all new apartment house units built in 1965 were air conditioned. The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute adds that 51,626 residential unit systems were exported last year. A challenging market is industrial technological needs. Jhemical, fertilizer and steel companies are using increasing- y lower temperature processes. Some call for temperatures be- ow minus 100 degrees Fahren- hit. Food processing, the biggest customer of the cooling indus- :ry, is still expanding, as are he printing and textile Indus- 'ries. Sales of auto air conditioners were around 2.5 million units in 1965 and are expected to hit 4.5 million units in 1970. Growing concern over air pollution is counted upon to boost a sideline of the air conditioning business.

Neatnicks Edge Out the Mods, Rockers By EDDY GILMORE LONDON (AF)-The Rockers are dead. The Mods have won — but not for too long. Now the Neatniks are taking over. Until recently many of Britain's under-30 male masses were divided into two warring factions, the Mods and the Rockers. By normal standards, Mods and Rockers dressed flamboyantly. The Rockers, primarily mo- NEWS BRIEFS as introduced by Unser, pastor of Mettiodist Church, mentioned briefly in this column a few weeks ago. • The minister is a full scale sialboating fan, finding the sport quite relaxing from his pastoral duties. He has been a sailboat- ist for four years, first having sailed on Alton Lake north of St. Louis when he was pastor of the Arlington Methodist Church at Bridgeton, Mo. He tried out hjs newly completed boat first on the .Alton Lake over the past Memorial Day weekend, then the other day he tried it out in the Triangle Boating Club chute — while this writer watched safely from the bank. Rev. Unser is proud of his new craft which he designed himself, doing most of the construction work. It is a catamaran (twin hull) type, 18 feet long and eight feet wide. First, he and a friend, Ron Touchette, constructed a mold for the hull design before he came to Hayti This mold was then used to produce six fiber glass hulls enough for three boats. The Rev. Unser brought two of them with him to Hayti, completing construction of the craft in spare time since then. Plywood was used for the decking over the hulls, which also was covered with fiber glass. The hulls contain styrafoam to make file boat virtually unsinkable. A 26-foot aluminum alloy mast, hinged so that it can be taken down easily and stowed for land transport, carries some 250 square feet of dacron sail material — a jib and mainsail. The hulls have 15-inch dagger boards extending into the water for stability, and each hull has a rudder, both linked together and the rudders must be manipulated according to the direction and tmount of the wind and the direction the boat is heading. Who is the minister's first mate in thit work? Why Mrt. Unser, of course, who is Ukln| up sailing for the first time this season. In observing the try-out ol the boat it seemed that Mrs. Unser appeared to be quite busy' handling the sails while her husband, handling the rud- that, if necessary, a small out* board motor may be attached to the transom between the two hulls, for use In propelling the craft if the wind dies, or for use as a safety device in the main channel Of the river where (lie current is strong.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — There are definite indications of a decline in lobster supply because of lowering temperatures of waters of the Maine coast, says the state director of marine research, Robert L.
